Perhaps some tropical birds who love to hang out near the water?
I've used the die that matches the curve in the card to cut the curve into my paper...and I've used a leafy decorative die to accent this panel as we're moving away from the water and onto the island!
What other wildlife could we possibly encounter as we make our way onto land?
And of course we're needing to add in some tropical flowers!
I've used the Hibiscus flower from the Under the Sea Collection as well as the Plumeria flower from the Tropical Paradise Collection to bring a touch of the islands to this creation!
Here's a closer look...
I've used the Papericious Frosting Powder created by our very own Rajni Chawla here on the hibiscus petals! The plumeria flowers have just had regular glitter applied to their flower tips.
As we continue our tropical paradise island tour...we come across another relaxin' monkey!
This panel I've left open should you want to stamp a sentiment or add a handwritten note!
You won't be able to see it as the sun once again disappeared from sight when it came time to take the photos, but each of these panels has been subtly glittered on the printed images.
It just gives the card a little extra elegant touch!
Lastly, we're to the back panel of the card where we discover some more birds of paradise and some beautiful florals.
I hope you've enjoyed our little tropical excursion!
These fold out cards are so much fun to make (a little hard to photograph LOL!) and will pack such a wow factor for the lucky recipients!
